La Nouvelle Ecole supports green, eco-friendly manufacturers by equipping the school with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. Additionally, we are proud to use tables, chairs, indoor and outdoor toys, building blocks, and arts-and-crafts materials from the following:


Sustainably Harvested Wood

All of our manufacturer’s wood comes from sustainable, managed forests.  The maple is harvested within 500 miles of our manufacturer’s workshops.


Healthy Air

All of our manufacturer’s furniture products are made from low emitting materials.


Healthy Materials

The manufacturer strictly prohibits no known hazards in the products and only allows green, safe materials for your children.

Healthy Nutrition

As parents we educate our children to respect, protect and nurture our bodies, our homes, our community, and our planet. 

That is why we believe our children should understand the importance of and enjoy nutritious, healthy and delicious food. When planning the menus we make sure to provide a wide range of foods to expose our children to a diversity of tastes, textures and culinary cultures.

La Nouvelle Ecole provides healthy cuisine prepared from local produce. The weekly menus shared to parents are diverse, yet simple, rich and tasty dishes.
